A Highlands woman admitted to police that she performed oral sex on a 14-year-old relative as part of a threesome with her boyfriend.

Mary Elizabeth Herring, 21, has been charged with the felony of aggravated sexual assault of a child under 17. Media reports say her boyfriend has also been charged, but court documents could not be located for his case.

Herring's court documents show the female family member was 14 when she went to Herring's house in May 2011.

The girl said Herring "placed her mouth on and tongue inside [her] vagina...in the act of having sexual intercourse with her while having a 'threesome' with the defendant's boyfrind," court documents say.

As part of the investigation, Herring was taken in for a lie-detector test.

"However, before the polygraph began, the defendant admitted...she put her mouth on the complainant's vagina," court documents say.

The court records list Herring as 5-foot-2, 230 pounds, so the girl would have had a difficult time overpowering her if she tried to do so.
